We have a light railway station in our town that's showed as a tram in the maps and I don't understand how I change it?

All the other stations seems right and I can't spot any different on the one called tram:

I think I know why this is. The station was previously incorrectly classified as light_rail, Roslagsbanan is narrow gauge "smalspår", but it is still (to my knowledge) a regular commuter train (even though SL calls it "Light rail" in English), not a higher-standard tram which is essentially what light rail is. I improved and corrected the map along Roslagsbanan about a month ago, but I forgot the last stations (Ekskogen to Kårsta) which I have now fixed and all of them are classed as train stations. If you fetch the latest map data it should hopefully only show as train and not as tram/light_rail.

What do you mean? It is on a railway=narrow_gauge, and is already a station=light_rail. As prompted, the only possible addition is light_rail=yes, which however the other stations don't have either. What application are you using? Other edits around are from 2 years ago, so data update should not be an issue.

The only difference is the station on the west has the =station separate from the track. With a railway=stop + public_transport=stop_position but train=yes.

I'm new here. Became a member tuesday and I try to fix this error for work.

We have a house for sale and this site shows Ekskogen as tram (Spårvagn in Swedish) and that's incorrect since we don't have that here.

I don't see any difference between the stations that belongs to Roslagsbanan so I don't understand how Ekskogen gets called tram.alt text
